bay, lisa patro, wqow tv o'claire and john quarter, news director waftvreinlander. we'll begin with one-minute opening statements. senator baldwin, your opening statement? >> thank for you this opportunity. over this last year i've traveled this great state meeting with people who are working hard, playing by the rules and trying to get ahead. unfortunately, for so many, it's been harder and harder just to get by. and what's changed hasn't been our work ethic, it's been the rules. you know, today in washington, big powerful entrusts the ones with a whole lot of money and best lobbyists get to write their own rules and there's too many politicians who are eager to help them. people feel that washington isn't listening to the struggles of middle class families, and that's why wisconsin needs a senator who will. i've spent my time in washington being a voice for the struggles of middle class families and standing up to powerful interests like wall street, big oil, and the big health insurance companies. my opponent spent his time in washington helping these same powerful interests

"before i voted against the $87 million, i voted against it." that played into the negative narrative of john kerry being a flip-flop. away47% tape that won't go plays into the stereote of romney as an aloof, detached, uncaring, and not able to show any empathy for people who are not in his social or economic bracket. >> from the politico piece, "rare is the moment where romney sings the praises of the working stiff, the which is pulling a double shift." mike huckabee told the jay leno, "romney reminds you of the guy who fired tear." -- fired you." >> romney is not going to be at the clinton who feels your pain. he is not a great politician. but one of the reasons there is the stereotypes - it did not come out of nowhere -- it came out of tens of millions of dollars of ads by the obama campaign about how he handled people at bain capital. the essence of this is the other series of ads, which say that he wants to reduce taxes on the rich. romney has protested that that is not true, that he wants to reduce the tax rates on the rich. but he is co
